The advantageous geographical location of Sygnak at the intersection
of two destinations of the Silk Road led to its prosperity.
The city had strong trading connections with Mavrennahr ,
Khorezm and many cities of Central Asia.
It is worth mentioning that the complex archaeological studies
on the ancient settlement of Sygnak were started in 2003 by the
Sygnak Archaeological Expedition of the International Kazakh-
Turkish University named after K.A. Yassawi. During the last
decades of excavations, a significant factual material on the
history of the ancient settlement has been obtained
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Kazakhstan
took into account the interests of researchers, and within the
framework of the year of Uzbekistan in Kazakhstan initiated the
joint archaeological works on the territory of the ancient settlement,
performed by IICAS, which brings together researchers
from both countries.
The project "Archaeological Studies on the Necropolis of the
ancient settlement of Sygnak" was implemented in the period
from April 15 to September 30, 2019 by the Inter national
archaeological expedition organized on the basis of the
memorandum and agreement signed by the International
Kazakh-Turkish University named after K.A. Yassawi and
the International Institute for Central Asian Studies.
The co-directors of the international expedition were the
candidate of historical sciences A. Iskanderova (IICAS,
Uzbekistan) and research fellow M. Bakhtybaev
(International Kazakh-Turkish University, Kazakhstan). The
work was carried out with the assistance of the Department
of Culture of Kyzylorda Region and Municipal Public Institution
on the Protection of Historical and Cultural Sites of the
Kyzylorda Region.
Implementation of the archaeological works on the territory
of the ancient settlement of Sygnak made the contribution
to the wide studies of this site. The visual investigation on
the territory of the necropolis found the original pieces of the
architectural decor between the destroyed mausoleums:
terracotta tiles with the floral pattern, mosaic panel, rosettes
with the glazed
incorporations. The International Kazakh-Uzbek Archaeological
Expedition has studied four mausoleums on the territory
of the ancient settlement of Sygnak. More than 400
pieces of the decorative materials gave an opportunity to
make the date the construction by the period of XIII-XV centuries
and identify the similar sites in the Southern Kazakhstan,
Khorasan, Central Asia, Iran and Azerbaijan. This
material permits to take a new look on the decoration techniques
of the architectural constructions and gravestones of
the mausoleum of this particular period.
